Drummer became a General

The band - the Ventures - had a young drummer for their first hit song and then they had to let him go because he was only 17 and could not play in the local clubs. The kid joined the Air Force and became a 4 star general. Years later he came back to the band to play one more time.

TOMBIGBEE Waterway from the LANDING A DAY BLOG

We recently camped out at an Army Corps campsite on the Tombigbee waterway. It was a great campsite. BUT - I wanted to know more about the river and the waterway itself - recalling that a recently deceased friend from Chumuckla (Clyde Moore) had piloted tugs on this waterway 20 plus year ago. FOUND THIS BLOG. It is a very interesting blog concept - the author "lands" on random google map spots daily and researches the area for readers. How about that?
.... When you view the blog (link above) do check out the ABOUT link. Fascinating Facts about USA.
